Remove the vent tube at the back run it with that off... If the cloths dry ok then you have a clogged vent Buy a dry vent cleaning kit and clean it out of call a professional to do it. If that does not help then you will need to do more trouble shooting. Please provide the make and model number of your appliance when asking questions
How long is the vent from the dryer to the outside? Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance. Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dry-ability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads. Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing. If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry.
Have you ever cleaned it out? If not, that is the most common problem with dryers. It can't breathe and takes multiple cycles to dry the clothes. Unplug the dryer and pull it out. Disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer. Clean out lint from dryer and vent. Take the vent outside if you have to and blow it out with air compressor, if you can. Now check the other end of the vent outside at the vent cap. Clean it out and make sure the vent cap flap is not stuck closed. After reassembling vent, turn on dryer and check for heat at outside vent. You also may need to clean it out more if lint has traveled down the vent. Also, clean out your lint filter religiously for more efficient drying. Those are the easy things to look for and fix on your own. If it still does not improve drying, you made need a repairman to trouble shoot it. Good luck!
Note: Normal drying time for a dryer
is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct,
is not clogged.
Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot
of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying
time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer
cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the
dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance
repairman perform this task.
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one
of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance.
Replace the defective thermostat.
3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case
it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes.
Replace the element if found defective.
make sure the vent is cleared ,sometimes all of cust / think they clean out but instead make clogg even worse,,, repl/coils remove 2 screews 1/4 in from botom panel heating coils are black in color simple fix,,,,,,,,
It ended up being a easy fix. Our old dryer was working fine and had been ran an hour before I hooked up the new Samsung dryer. Therefore I assumed when the new dryer did not work there had to be something wrong with it. There ended up being nothing wrong with it and it was my dryer vent. It was barley plugged which caused it to not heat up properly. I was told that the new dryers have a lot more sensors on them and its very sensitive about needing a clean vent to vent out the heat. My vent was not very dirty, but it had just enough build up of lent in it, it caused the dryer to not vent properly and it would keep shutting the flame off. Blew it out with my leaf blower and now it heats up and dry quick. I hope this helps
DISCONNECT THE EXHAUST FROM THE BACK OF THE DRYER. RUN ONE LOAD OF LAUNDRY. IF THE LOAD DRIES O.K., THE EXHAUST DUCT IS RESTRICTED. CLEAN OUT THE DUCT WORK. IF IT IS FLEXIBLE MATERIAL, REPLACE WITH RIGID METAL DUCT WORK.
